Hey, iv'e got the same issue, 98 GT though. Do not use any type of lubricant or soap or anything on your belt. Big mistake, just causes more issues. I have not yet got around to fixing mine yet, but i would reccomend: Take off your current belt, Spin each pulley, take a high grit piece of sand paper, and scuff the pulleys that ride on the back side of your belt. You could lightly touch your belt with a little more coarse piece of sand paper, but id just say upgrade to a better quality belt. Hope it works out for you.
